Assistant Sound Effects Editor

While watching a film or television show, you may not immediately appreciate the effort of a sound effects editor. By their very nature, sound effects are generally background information that is meant to deliver a more complete sensory experience. However, if you can close your eyes—just listen—and see in your mind just as clearly the action on screen, likely the sound effects provide you with an accurate mental picture.

Careers in Music: Making the Album

Compared to producing a feature film or video game, recording an album is a small operation, employing just a handful of people directly involved in the creative process alongside supporting staff within recording and audio post-production studios. Based on census data, recording studios employ an average of just four people. However, that figure is deceptive and shouldn’t discourage anyone interested in pursuing a career in the music industry.

Assistant Mix Engineer

The principle responsibility of the assistant mix engineer is to streamline and simplify the primary mix engineer’s workflow. While the assistant is expected to perform many technical tasks, he or she is mostly essential to maintain organization.

Assistant Mastering Engineer

The assistant mastering engineer serves much like an apprentice—whether formally or informally—to the mastering engineer. He or she is expected to observe more than actually participate in the process. However, the assistant does have a vital role to perform. To ensure that the primary engineer is able to work as efficiently as possible, the assistant is responsible for prepping and organizing sessions. 

Henson Recording Studios

Purchased by The Jim Henson Company in 1999, the former site of A&M Records is now the Henson Recording Studios. However, despite a music history that stretches back to the 1960s, the studios were born of film legacy.

Mastering Engineer

Producing an album is essentially a four-step process: recording, editing, mixing, and mastering. Mastering refers to the process of refining and transferring the final mix of audio tracks to a data storage device (the master) that will serve as the source for all future duplication; this may be a CD, vinyl record, or digital file.
